Salisbury Police looking into two unrelated weekend shooting incidents
By Shavonne Walker
SALISBURY — Salisbury Police officials are looking into two separate shooting incidents that occurred over the weekend at two residences. No injuries were reported in either incident.
Officials said a 71-year-old woman reported she was asleep inside her West C Avenue home when she was awakened just before 2 a.m. by gunfire. The home, located in the 300 block, had been fired upon seven times, with two of the rounds striking the house.
One of the bullets shattered a rear window and another left a hole in the rear door. Police say bullets also struck the brick exterior of the home.
Police Lt. Greg Beam said they do not believe this was a random incident. The investigation into the Sunday morning shooting continues.
In another unrelated shooting in the 400 block of Grace Street, police found two bullets on a window pane near the front door. A 34-year-old woman reported to police that she and others inside her home were awakened when they heard the shooting around 2:35 a.m. on Sunday.
She told police she didn’t know why anyone would shoot her house. She’d only moved in June 2017 and never had a problem with anyone, Beam said.
Her son was asleep on the couch with his younger brother. Police said there were several people in the house. The occupants heard a car speed away headed toward Fairmont Avenue.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.
